2. Almonds- rich in nutrients including magnesium, vitamin E, iron, calcium, fiber and riboflavin. A scientific review publised in Nutrition Reviews last year found that almonds as a food may help maitain healty cholesterol levels. Almonds have more fiber than any other tree nut. Almonds are 91-94% unsaturated fatty acids! Unsaturated is the "healthy" fat.
3. Broccoli- Didn't your mother tell you to eat your broccoli? She was right, it is rich in fiber, calcium, potassium, folate and phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are compounds which reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes and some cancers.
4. Blueberries- rich in fiber, antioxidants and phytonutrients. According to a study carried out at Harvard Medical School, elderly people who eat plenty of blueberries and strawberries are less likely to suffer from cognative decline. They are also named by scientists at Texas Woman's University to help in curbing obesity.
5. Oily Fish- such as salmon, trout, mackerel, herring and anchovies. These types of fish have oil in their tissues and around the gut. Their lean fillets contain up to 30% oil, specifically omega 3 fatty acids. These oils are known to provide benefits for the heart and the nervous system.
6. Green leafy vegetables- Studies have shown that a high intake of dark leafy vegetables, such as spinach or cabbage may significantly lower a person's risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
